Trv355 – a excellent all spherical camcorder. This camcorder is straightforward to use and can be received up and managing extremely rapidly (though charging the battery for at the very least eight hours initially is advised). The benefits are fantastic, and after hooked up to a appropriate laptop, it is brief and quick to add and edit your footage. This can then be saved to really hard disk or returneed to the camcorder. The trv355 is not specifically mild or compact, but it takes advantage of tapes which are easily offered, has a fantastic (20x) optical zoom, dv in, dv out, and a lux night time eyesight method (as noticed on dwelling tv’s ‘most haunted’)for this kind of cost, what extra could you ask?.

Great deal of digital camera for these kinds of a small selling price. Soon after browsing the stores without achievement for a dgital camera that would perform my hi8 recordings and 3 visits to the sony centre for the trv355 product, only to be explained to every single time that they had been out of inventory. I eventually determined to order from amazon. The camera was £112 more cost-effective than some retailers had quoted and £152 cheaper than argos. The digicam was purchased on the saturday night and acquired wednesday morning (a working day earlier than was quoted – fantastic services). The camera is proving to be a very little asset with quite a few characteristics that i am nonetheless however to test out. For any person who has worked as a freelance videographer since 1988, i was impressed. Cetainly ~ a great deal of digital camera for the cost.

Nearly all singing, all dancing. The only time i have used a camcorder is when i borrowed a friend’s old analogue 8mm, things have changed a bit sinse then: however, i was impressed at the compact size (given the features it contains). I was looking for specific features and found nearly all of them with the dcr-trv355 :-1) 8mm to play my old hi8 tape. 2) dv in and out (my pc already has firewire). 3) usb – webcam capabilities. 4) analogue in and out (other device connection). 5) still photo mode (with memory stick). This machine came up with the goods:1) not only did it play my old 8mm tape, it outputted it through dv out in such good quality i would have thought it was digital. 2) the dv connection was simplicity in itself – plug and play. 3) after installing the drivers, i was web-camming with ease (still having some problems with sound though – going to read through the manual again tommorrow).

Full-featured, high-quality camera. Bought primarily as a means of recovering old 8mm/hi8 recordings, this camera is so good that it has encouraged me to start shooting new footage again. Interfaces easily to my pc (usb or dv) and have been able to back-up 12 year old 8mm tapes to dvd with superb picture quality. Chunky, but not outrageously so, with the advantage over most purely digital low-end camcorders that you get a large zoom capability and the use of relatively cheap digital 8 tapes. Outstanding battery life – i bought a qm71d battery and recently completed a 2 week holiday without re-charging once – over 2 hours shooting in mostly small bursts, with considerable use of motorized zoom and lcd screen. My old camcorder managed about 30 minutes on a battery twice the size. Auto-focus is quick and optical zoom, although a little tricky as the control is so sensitive, gives remarkable close-ups and very high quality pictures. Lots of features that i haven’t even looked into seriously yet but there appears to be plenty to keep the true enthusiast occupied. The manual is heavy going as it covers so many different models but the basics are simple enough to use with very little pre-reading. This could be a downside as its tempting to put the manual to one side and possibly never discover much of what the camera can do, but that’s being picky.

Sony dcr-trv355 digital8 camcorder. I had been concerned that i would not be able to save my old hi8 tapes that had been taken over tha past 8 years when my old camcorder packed up. I trawled the net to find a product that could use my old tape format hi8 but also give me the new digitised system digital 8 of recording. Well, this camera does it and more.Within minutes of it’s arrival i was linked up and downloading my video footage. [pre order a firewire cable]. The booklet that accompanies the camera is informative and well structured for novice use, with excellent diagrams to aid you. The features are truly awesome, usb download for video and still pictures on a sony memory stick [not supplied again pre order 128 mb is sufficient]also pre-select usb in the camera’s menu as the usb will not work. Firewire video streaming @ hi digital quality is awesome, you will need a large hard drive 80gb recommended. Further functions include backlight, nightshot, super night shot, tape search, special effects for video such as sepia, black and white, widescreen, art, mosiac the list is endless.

Trv355 – a great all round camcorder. This camcorder is simple to use and can be got up and running very quickly (although charging the battery for at least 8 hours first is recommended). The results are good, and once hooked up to a suitable pc, it is quick and easy to upload and edit your footage. This can then be saved to hard disk or returneed to the camcorder. The trv355 is not particularly light or compact, but it uses tapes which are readily available, has a good (20x) optical zoom, dv in, dv out, and a 0 lux night vision mode (as seen on living tv’s ‘most haunted’)for this sort of price, what more could you ask?.

The camera is easy to use and has a good menu system. Although it is a little chunky, i havn’t found this a problem. The advantage of the trv355 over the similar but cheaper models is the ability to use external microphones; this camera picks up a lot of wind noise and you can cut this out with a blank jackplug. I wasn’t fussed about the memory stick option as i have a good digital still camera. It does the job and has the same video quality as a digital video camera but a lot cheaper. The zoom can be a bit quick if you are not careful. The software supplied is a good intro to editing on the pc. Only point is that sony could have put a cassette in the box – buy a pack of three with your order.

If, like me, you need a camcorder that will play your old analogue 8mm and hi8 while making new recording in a digital format this may be the camcorder for you. If that is not a must have feature i expect some of the other camcorders will be better and/or cheaper. The manual is a bit confusing covering 9 different sony handycam models in both english and french on the same page. This comment will naturally also apply to other models in the sony handycam range. The optional memory stick allows recording of low definition photos (jpeg) and movies (mpeg) 320 x 240 or 160 x 112. Photos are displayed on the tv full sized but mpeg are displayed in a compressed box in the centre of the screen. A 64mb stick will hold over 350 photos or about 11 minutes of mpeg at the highest definition. The usb cable and software supplied allows copying of images to your pc including the facility to make mpeg movies from your tapes, including your old analogue tapes. I am looking forward to trying out some of the features such as night shooting, interval shooting (1 second every few minutes) etc, but as with most camcorders i expect i will only use 5% of the features ( but you may use a different 5%).
